If It’s in the Chest…

I’m still fighting off the KTD (kissing transmitted disease) Ben gave me. I feel a lot better, but still have a lot of congestion. I want to run, but I remember the good advice Glenn Jones gave me in the past – “If it’s in the chest you must rest.”

But, I also remembered that I don’t listen to anyone but my damn self so I ran 4.5 miles super slow today. I needed to get out and move! I feel better. And if I die I have no one to blame but myself and I’m okay with that.

I got a late start this morning and was getting hungry, but didn’t want to full on eat breakfast. Before I left I ate some of Ben’s cereal. It’s okay because he was in shower and didn’t even know. Ha.IMG 8082 thumb If It’s in the Chest…

When I got back I made an egg scramble wrap on my WRAPS, not my tortillas because I don’t have any in the house icon wink If It’s in the Chest…IMG 8085 thumb If It’s in the Chest…

I spread a Laughing Cow wedge on the wrap and added ketchup and hot sauce. This was amazing!IMG 8089 thumb If It’s in the Chest… 

I also made a pot of coffee from our Coffees from Around the World box we got for Christmas. IMG 8080 thumb If It’s in the Chest…

I think today’s roast was from Guatemala. I felt like I was on vacation again… WelcometoGuatemala thumb If It’s in the Chest…

Except Maryland is nothing like Guatemala…oh well. I will drink my coffee with my eyes closed and dream of better days icon smile If It’s in the Chest…Tikal thumb If It’s in the Chest…


The plan for the rest of the day:

- Work (it has been so crazy I was on until 9pm last night!)

- Organize upcoming travel plans

- Comfort food for dinner

- Watch LOST and hope they don’t just go ahead and kill another good character since we’re running low at this point icon sad If It’s in the Chest…lost poster thumb If It’s in the Chest…

    Haha! If you don’t get caught, it didn’t happen. I thought about eating my boyfriend’s ice cream last night, but I think he would notice since there’s no way I can eat “just a little bit”, which is how I usually justify the beginnings of an ice cream-stravaganza.

    LOST! Yeah, they went a little crazy back a couple of weeks ago with all the deaths! And then last week was just crazy in general. :) I’m excited for tonight and for Sunday though!

    Sometimes when I’m sick and haven’t run for a while I get antsy too! The elliptical can be a good alternative if you want. I am getting a bit annoyed at LOST, the plot and character’s have become so crazy and complicated.
